Key Features and Benefits:

  • PTP Field Verifier (PFV)
    • Analyze PTP protocol for conformance to standards or userdefined profiles.
    • Automatic pass/fail indication – check captured PTP messages against a pre-defined set of rules, with clear pass/fail alerts.
  • Conformance Test Application
    • Start testing in seconds – just two clicks to configure crucial standards-defined test sequences.
    • Automatically generates PTP and ESMC messages, Time Error and SyncE impairments, and applies filters, metrics and masks.
  • PTP Applications
    • Analyze the Time Error (TE) of, for example, Class-C/D T-Boundary Clocks or Class-B PRTC/Master Clocks
    • Apply standards-defined Time Error impairments
    • Combine with SyncE and ESMC for complex tests such as Phase Noise Response to SyncE Transient.
  • SyncE (Jitter & Wander)
    • Prove SyncE Jitter and Wander to G.8262/G.8262.1 at rates up to 100GbE.
